Encore Recertification Program – Protect Your Investment!

The Encore Recertification Program from FRD USA shifts the burden and expense of routine breaker maintenance onto factory-trained FRD technicians and away from overworked, understaffed service departments.

Regularly maintained breakers upgrade your initial tool investment and decrease the likelihood of breaker failure during operation or rental. What’s more, upgraded equipment will increase utilization, generating more revenue.

Designed to extend the life of your  hydraulic breakers, the unique Encore Recertification Program offers three distinct service levels, each incorporating various maintenance options. From routine tool inspection to complete overhaul, you choose the level that best suits your needs.

Features & Benefits

You choose the level that best suits your needs

Tier I: Offers a detailed inspection report including digital photographs complete with test firing

Tier II: In addition to the inspection report, tier II includes all seals, a diaphragm, four through-bolts and related hardware. We’ll even polish the piston and cylinder before reassembly. Your unit will be returned assembled with all bolts factory-torqued, all nitrogen chambers properly charged and the breaker painted and decaled.

Tier III: The ultimate maintenance package, this level includes all services from tiers I and II, but adds many more features. We’ll replace the thrust ring and front cover (if applicable) retainer pin(s), grease fitting, hose whips and all bushings, and provide you with a choice of one standard working steel. In addition, tier III includes a three-month limited warranty, free return freight, and eligibility for extended discounts
